Caramoor Presents a New Lineup of Livestreamed Concerts this Fall

Caramoor is delighted to announce a full range of virtual and live fall programming. Dashon Burton, Jeremy Denk, Amy Helm, Anthony McGill, the Aaron Diehl Trio, Callisto Quartet, and TENET Vocal Artists will all perform without an audience in the Rosen House, continuing the series of livestreams from the Music Room that the New York Times calls “adventurous and excellent.” Also presented as a livestream, Broadway stars Laura Osnes and Tony Yazbeck give a special performance for this year’s Cabaret Benefit.
In addition, in-person visitors to the 90-acre Westchester estate will be able to explore the site-specific sound art installations of Sonic Innovations and attend two Beginner’s Ear concerts, in a continuation of the series pairing guided meditations with live music that was introduced last month. With its idyllic woodlands, gardens and indoor and outdoor spaces, Caramoor is ideally placed to participate responsibly in New York’s re-opening process and inspire audiences safely this fall.

I’ve recently connected with Lawrence Faltz, life-long classical music lover and amateur astronomer from Westchester Amateur Astronomers, to learn about what stars we can see at this time of year. Music and the stars go hand in hand in unforeseen ways.
